They're called soothies and I've only found them in america. They are really fantastic both my kids used them for a short time after a friend got given one from a hospital in canada. Try buying them from ebay USA (I did this first time round) or try asking if someone on mumsnet who's in the US will post some over.
I bought these for DS when he was born but thought they looked abit too odd IYKWIM. Plus I put one in the steriliser and the teat came right out when I lifted it with the tongs. So am not sure about safety aspect but probably just a faulty one.
Found them at Mothercare yesterday. Called Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature. They do not look exactly the same as the blue ones I saw on tv - they are clear, but similar I think. Ds3 was not that impressed by them, but he did suck a little which he would not do on other ones we tried.
I am a little confused here....I havent seen a closer to nature soother that looks like it has a hole in the middle. Can anyone confirm what soother we are talking about. It seems they have a few different closure to nature soothers available.
if you are after one that is more like a nipple steer away from silicone. its nothing like a nipple. go for a mam ulti latex. they are soft and pliable and for breast fed babies especially the first choice of dummy
